Apple TV App Now Available on Select 2019 LG TVs

LG today announced that the Apple TV app and accompanying Apple TV+ streaming service are now available on select 2019 LG TVs in the United States and more than 80 other countries.

The addition of the ‌Apple TV‌ app to LG's 2019 TV lineup follows the CES debut of new 2020 models that come with the ‌Apple TV‌ app pre-installed.

LG TV owners can access the ‌Apple TV‌ app from the LG Home app Launcher, and along with ‌Apple TV+‌, LG users can also subscribe to Apple channels and access their iTunes libraries to rent, purchase, and watch TV shows and movies.

The TVs that support the ‌Apple TV‌ app are also compatible with AirPlay 2, allowing users to share or mirror content from the iPhone, iPad, or Mac directly to an LG TV.

TV models that feature the ‌Apple TV‌ app as of today include the 2019 LED TVs and NanoCell TVs (series SM9X and SM8X). LG says that later in the month, the ‌Apple TV‌ app will also roll out on select UHD UM7X and UM6X models. The app will be available on 2020 models at launch.

In the future, LG also plans to bring the ‌Apple TV‌ app to 2018 models, but that won't be happening until later this year.

Till LG learns to support their slightly older OLED models with new software, I'll not buy anything new from them. [We have a 77" OLED that's a few years old (OLED77G7), and feel abandoned by LG]
Using the vote by where I spend money once it get'll replaced.
Never rely on OS updates by TV manufacturers. No matter how expensive your TV is, you're buying it for the sheer size. The OS is crap and should be ignored. Buy Apple TV or Roku so that you can upgrade your smart box for cheap.

None of the TV makers, saved except for Vizio, give any crap about their existing customers. They want you to either buy a new TV model while collecting and sell your viewing habits (Vizio included).

The only real solution is getting Apple TV, which sadly, is being neglected (both the hardware and tvOS).
The TV business is so ripe for disruption. A new entrant that comes in and provides Apple level of design, customer service and regular updates would own the industry, leaving the existing dinosaurs scrambling. I wish that were Apple itself but I've given up waiting.

LG doesn’t support any of their TVs as far as I am concerned. They had my 2018 TV for 6 months before they returned it unfixed because the issue was within limits. The backlighting made the TV look checkerboard and the repair person was blown away. the only thing LG adds is ads.

I'm not sure why anyone would use this vs. a real Apple TV (?) It seems that you would just be letting LG harvest all of your activity to sell to third parties. I have a 65" LG OLED, and I would never let it connect to the internet. I couldn't care less about TV software updates - I want my TV to be "dumb" and just play whatever my Apple TV feeds it.
